Appeal for Witnesses/Dash-Cam Footage: Vehicle fails to STOP

North Yorkshire Police is appealing for witnesses after a white Vauxhall Astra failed to stop for officers in Scarborough.

It happened around midday on Saturday 17 August, when the vehicle drove off from officers after being requested to pull over on Stoney Haggs Lane. The vehicle was stopped in traffic a short time later and has since been seized by police.

The driver, a 36-year old man from Hull, was arrested at the scene and has since been charged with a number of offences including failing to stop, dangerous driving and driving without a licence or insurance. He will be appearing at Scarborough Magistrates Court on Monday 9th September.

He has also been released under investigation pending the results of a blood test

The arresting officer, PC Liam Cromack, of Scarborough Police said:

“Due to the time of day, the road was fairly busy and I believe a number of motorists may have seen the Astra as it made its way down Seamer Moor Lane. I am particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have a dashcam fitted to their vehicle which captured some or all of the incident.”

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation should contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2, and ask for Liam Cromack. You can also email
